Thanks to being able to hire the same sitter we had used several years ago, when we were taking care of my mother and father in law, we were able to go out on our Date Day today! It was wonderful to get out of the house and know that Daddy would be well taken care of.
I set a fairly light itinerary for the day, since I knew I was so tired, but I did want to at least go to a few Estate Sales. We had very good luck at one of them, since we caught them at that stage when they just wanted to get rid of everything. That doesn’t happen very often, but when we’re lucky enough to find a real sale like that, we usually leave with some real bargains. Today was no exception. Now all I have to do (HA!) is find the time to photograph everything we bought and write up the descriptions, so we can put them up for sale on eBay.
I managed to take several doses of Tylenol during the day without DH realizing it, as I didn’t want him to know that I was so achy. I was determined that our day together not be spoiled. I only used the cane at one house, because the driveway was very steep, but my walking was stiff and awkward feeling all day today. That’s a sure sign of just how tired I am.
I had a bad headache today, too, something I rarely have any more. I suspect that’s because I’m still not getting enough sleep. I’ve already had my night medicine and a sleeping pill, as I write this, and I plan to go to sleep as soon as I finish this post. I’m really not having that much trouble going to sleep. It’s staying asleep that’s giving me trouble. And, of course, my tummy couldn’t get through the day without putting up a fuss. I was extra careful to eat bland foods, but here I sit, with the hot pad across my middle, trying to make things feel better.
